My sister has a friend in Allersberg, Germany. She is struggling with breastfeeding her three day old son. She asked her doctor for a referral to a Lactation Consultant and he told her that he won't refer her because formula is available and if bf'ing hurts then stop and use what the economy has for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br>
Does anyone know of some help she could get in her area? My sister can only do so much over MSN!

Her closest LLL leader English speaking is Nanci, who can be reached at 08444-1800. I am not close enough for a home visit. She could also go into Nurnberg, as there is probably a midwifery group with LCs, or at the very least a frauen group showing sling wearing and the like, where she may be able to get some references.

I just wanted to say that this physician must be one of the biggest jerks in the world! I would have recommended to contact LLL but am happy to see this has been taken care of.<br><br>
Please tell your sister that she can report this and his unbelievably unprofessional behavior to the physicians association = Ärztekammer. All physicians must be members by law, therefore he will get into trouble for this. He must have been brainwashed by the formula industry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

My sister is passing along the message to her friend that she can report this doctor to the physicians association.
